Jesus The One And Only
February 23, 2014
This my first experience reading a book by Beth Moore. My feelings are mixed about what I should say in my review. I have to say that this book had both strong and weak chapters. I am not in anyway criticizing her work , rather giving an honest assessment of the content. I was especially moved by the chapter describing Jesus crucifixion, it really was heartrending and moving to see again all my saviour endured for us his children. There were some chapters I felt that the content had nothing to do with the title but perhaps someone else will see it differently, maybe it has to do with where we are in our Christian journey. I would recommend this book to others.
This wonderful book puts me in the middle of Jesus' life on earth, making me feel like I was there. Beth speaks to me personally, calling me Beloved, and helps me see how the stories written about Christ's life can impact me and what I do with my life today. I want to loan this book to friends, but I just just keep on wanting to read it again! I'll have to buy a copy to loan out. :)
Jesus the One and Only takes one on a journey - a journey of the life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of Luke. Luke is unique in his perspective in that he was the only Gentile Gospel writer, he was inspired by God to write this account. Where the other writers assume the reader is familiar with the culture of the day, Luke focuses on the Jewishness of Christ and the culture in which He lived. Through Luke we see how Jesus was and is the fulfillment of Jewish law and God's promises to humanity.
We see Jesus experiencing the human experience living as an ordinary average person. Just as Jesus asked questions, as a child in the Temple, we too should ask questions so that we may come to a greater understanding of God. Only by seeking answers can our faith grow. But asking isn't enough, we must also listen to the answers. Growth and understanding are not instantaneous and it may take time to understand the answers and how they apply to us.
We see through the temptations of Jesus that temptation is not a sign of God's displeasure. When facing temptation don't fight with your words instead do as Jesus did and fight Satan with God's Word.
Through Luke's Gospel we learn that no one goes unnoticed by Christ. Studying the Bible is proof that we are the family of God. The scars of the Crucifixion are a testament of this notice and love that Jesus has for us.
Jesus the One and Only has 53 chapters that cover select verses in the Gospel of Luke, every single verse is not discussed, but this in no way detracts from this study. This study is perfect for the individual or in a group setting. This book will help you to actively engage with God's message and not just sit on the side and watch. We need to seek out seek out God and this book will give you a good starting point to change your life and to become more effective in your daily relationship with Him.
I was provided a copy of this book through Shelton Interactive in exchange for my honest review.

"Jesus, the One and Only" is an invitation to know Christ personally. Beth Moore, writer and teacher of best-selling books and Bible studies, uses the book of Luke as her guide as she leads readers through a study that will open your eyes to the life and character of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
This book complements Moore's "Jesus, the One and Only" Bible study but can also be read separately. Beginning with the story of John the Baptist and ending with the ascension after the death and resurrection of Christ, Moore uses her talent of teaching the Word to present truths about Jesus that will help you understand His teachings so you can apply them to your life.
Moore takes a biblical approach but does take some liberty in imagining what would have been going on which some may find off-putting. However, she does let the reader know when her imagination takes over. I enjoy these little diversions as she shows us the culture of the time and what Jesus might have been doing and what others were thinking as He taught and preached.
This book will enhance a study of Christ and will lead to a better understanding of the time period He lived in and why people reacted the way they did.
